I can’t disagree with you there, but I do think people can make a choice on that one, it’s only themselves they will hurt.I suppose it does make a difference depending on the style you ride or where you ride, but potting along. On the main road its likely crush injuries from a motorist will cause the most damage. Offroad those is a different kettle of fish where offs are common, as are trees and large rocks, and going over the bars due to hills it's your head thats likely to contact the ground. There helmets arent just a requirement but a necessity.

Let’s not mention who pays for the NHS to fix them
